Opto/Mechanical Engineering

Brass Roots Technologies designs custom Opto/Mechanical components, assemblies and systems. Our team integrates high-bandwidth optoelectronics (hardware, firmware, software) with custom opto-mechanical designs to produce full-performance prototype systems. We identify specific manufacturing processes and vendors to support the optical and mechanical design, and we facilitate contract manufacturing interface and communications all the way through volume production ramp.
